Rockets keeping Bruno Caboclo?

There’s still a clear need at center and power forward, and you could give a strong argument for another point guard. As far as centers go, Bruno Caboclo is still a free agent, but The Athletic understands that the organization is invested in him and would like to have him going forward. But I’d doubt if Houston would be confident with just Caboclo as the sole backup big so there’s some bargain hunting to be had. The real question, now, becomes what does Houston deem more valuable at this point: added depth (a point guard and forward/center) or Gordon?
